Critic Reviews for Devilman Crybaby Season 1

All Critics (9) | Top Critics (1)

Can be a difficult watch for Americans, especially if they've never heard of the Devilman franchise before. But it would be a waste to ignore such a gorgeous, disturbing series.

Oct 15, 2018 | Full Review…

Yuasa's narrative approach, of starting the series with much action and gaggy humor only to turn it into something completely dramatic serves the title quite well, as it retains interest for the whole of the 10 episodes.

Dec 25, 2019 | Full Review…

Masaaki Yuasa's contemporary reprise of Akira Fudo and Ryo Asuka's "love" story is as orgiastically violent and unflinchingly risqué as Nagai's original manga, a fitting tribute to both the creator's oeuvre and the character's storied legacy.

Feb 22, 2019 | Full Review…

Devilman Crybaby is certainly not suitable for all viewers, but is one of the rare graphic action anime that has an incredible story to back up its fantastic animation.

Oct 15, 2018 | Full Review…

It moves from jawdropping to heartbreaking at a moment's notice, but it never strays from being unforgettable.

Jan 22, 2018 | Full Review…

Ultra-violence and heavy themes may not sound all that enticing, but the series also has its lighter moments, thanks to an offbeat sense of humor that's made Yuasa a fan favorite.

Jan 18, 2018 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

Days into 2018, Netflix has released an audacious, unique show that could go down as one of the year's best.

Jan 10, 2018 | Full Review…

Above all, Devilman: Crybaby is visually enthralling, even when you put aside what's being depicted.

Jan 10, 2018 | Full Review…

Ultra-violent animated series is way too intense for kids.

    Garbage anime, 2 cats died (1 died twice)....and a dog was eaten....(not by a Chinese so it's not okay)

    Not the biggest fan of anime usually, but this anime is my favorite one that i have seen. The entire story is strong and the ending had me sobbing. A wonderful show, very gory, but is very very good.

    Whata shitty shitty show... Watched the whole season almost falling asleep... Bad animations, bad character developing, bad fight scenes, terrible story... Cheesus, whata fucking piece of shit!!!

    Right up there with the greats in animated series and films. A masterpiece.

    Lack of character development, too many holes in the story, too hard to watch and impossible to enjoy. The only praise I have for "Devilman Crybaby" is that I love that Netflix worked on something this explicitly graphic and sexual. That bumps it up to 1 star instead of 1/2 star. Maybe for those who are familiar with the Manga (Nagai's "Devilman"), they have the necessary background information to appreciate this series. However, as someone without that benefit, for me it had no entertainment value as I had too many problems with the storyline and the characters. I understand that cramming it into ten 20-minute episodes required a haircut, but I feel like the barber ended up chopping off the head.

    I want so badly to type "we live in a society", but this show has stronger and more introspective points than Joker. I can tell you that the ending of the show will absolutely blow anyone watching away. It is an amazing depiction of human fault and the fault in our definitions of right and wrong, but goes much further than the Joker as it goes into the psychology of packs and mobs, as well as the psychology of the separate being, in a deeper and more scientific way. I was unprepared for what was to come and so will you be, and I can't say you'll be delighted, but you'll leave enlightened. I know I was.

    Love the smoothness of the animation, plot and music
  • Jan 16, 2020
    Anime muy intenso. Si te agarra desprevenido da un golpe de 180 son que te des cuenta.
  • Jan 10, 2020
    This anime...I've never seen anything like it... The animation, soundtrack, and art style are phenomenal. Watch this ASAP.

    Still dancing to "devilman no uta"
